Overview
Download email messages and file attachments from Gmail to Google Drive, automatically. The emails are saved as PDF Files.
Save Emails is an email backup and archiving add-on for Gmail that lets you automatically download email messages and file attachments from Gmail to Google Drive. You can also save Gmail messages in shared Google Drives.

The email threads are converted into high-quality print-ready PDF files while the file attachments are saved to Google Drive in their original native format.

You can use the Gmail archiver to backup important emails, video files,  timesheets, photos, Microsoft Office documents, travel receipts, expenses, and other emails easily from Gmail to your Google Drive permanently. The app works with Gmail and GSuite (Google Apps) accounts.

Check the help manual at https://digitalinspiration.com/docs/GA02 to know more about the capabilities of Save Emails addon.

Attorneys have used Save Emails to download and print all email correspondence related to litigations with few clicks. Teachers can download student assignments in respective student folders automatically. Corporate users can save Uber receipts for claiming expenses. Sellers can archive PayPal invoices and payment receipts as PDFs.

The app runs in the background, once every hour, but you also have an option to run the rules manually. Go to Add-ons > Saves Emails and Attachments > Manage Rules and select any rule from the dropdown to download the matching emails.

How to Use Save Emails with Gmail
---------------------------------

To get started with Save Gmail, use the built-in wizard to create a rule and any email messages in Gmail that match this rule will be automatically saved to a specific folder in your Google Drive. You can organize the saved emails in date-based subfolders to avoid cluttering the main folder.

Unlike email automation solutions like IFTTT or Zapier only work on new and incoming messages, the Save Emails add-on can also download old emails to your Google Drive. All the activity is logged inside a Google Spreadsheet for quick search and reference.

For instance, you can have a rule where emails from Expedia and Trip Advisor are automatically saved to the Travel folder in your Google Drive. Or a rule where all emails with "backup" in the subject line are saved to the project folder in Google Drive. If you are running out of space in your Gmail account, you can set up a rule for message size, and all emails with large attachments are saved to Drive.

Download Gmail - Advanced Uses
------------------------------

You can customize the file names of saved emails and attachments with variables. For instance, you can set the attachment name as {{Sender}} {{Subject}} to include the sender's name and the email subject in the attachment file name.

You can also choose to overwrite files in Google Drive if an attachment with a similar name already exists in the same folder. Google Drive allows you to have multiple files with a similar name in the same folder.

Free vs Premium
---------------

The add-on is free and fully functional. Premium version includes several extract features including:

1. Create an unlimited number of rules for downloading Gmail messages to Google Drive.
2. Emails are saved every 15 minutes while the free edition downloads emails once every hour.
3. Rename PDF files and email attachments based on the email subject, sender or date.
4. Save emails in separate folders based on the email headers.
5. Skip downloading smaller files.
6. Allow or disallow saving of file attachments of specific types.
7. Overwrite existing Google Drive files (useful for keeping a single copy of disk backups)
8. Specify your own custom formats for printing dates in PDF files.
9. Save PDF files in your own Drive folder or a Team Drive folder owned by another user in the organization.
10. Download file attachments and emails in Google Shared Team Drive folders.

It works, and I appreciate the developer for creating it. However, it doesn't add any information to the file names, other than the email subject, without paying the $29 charge for premium. If he charged $5 or even $10 I would have just paid it. Every one of my downloaded emails has an identical file name, so now I have to go through each one and rename them. At least a date would be nice for the free version.

Just make sure your sheet is in the same folder you want to save the email in and it should work fine. If that doesn't work, clear your cache and reinstall the add on. Give the developers a break, the world is not the same as it used to be. Good luck and be safe.

Received an email last month notifying me that because of an update, you needed to 'Reauthorize Addon'. Went to the Google Sheet > Add-ons > 'Your Add-on Name' > Reauthorize Add-on. Works perfectly fine since then.
